I started downloading Photoshop CS5 Extended over 9 hours ago, and it's still going. I did get an error report saying that an image could not be downloaded. Is that why it's taking so long? Help, please!
We need more info about your network connection, what browser etc. There is a built-in session timeout for safety reasons so nobody can hijack it/ ride along and do nasty things to your computer, but generally this should work.
I'm using Google Chrome on a MacBook Air. What kind of info do you need about my network connection? I'm not sure how to answer that. I think it's DSL wifi connection. I know it's wifi at least. I downloaded InDesign and Illustrator okay. The warning pop up says, "The following disk images couldn't be opened: Photoshop_12_1_LS1.dgm, Reason: invalid checksum."
Go to Finder > Type Disk Utility > Preferences and simply unchecking the box that says "Verify Checksums" . Close Disk Utility. Then Creative suite dmg should open fine and the program should install without any issues.
(You might want to re-check the verify checksums box after you've finished the installation though because it's there to help prevent the installation of corrupted .dmgs that could potentially harm your computer)
